The Academy Award Winning Marvel Cinematic Universe

That whole thing about James Gunn being the architect of Cosmic Marvel post-phase 4 was not accurate according to Feige.

https://mcucosmic.com/2019/02/22/ke...-side-of-the-mcu-was-blown-out-of-proportion/

All we know about Gunn's potential plans post-GOTG3 is that he wanted to do Thunderbolts. Who knows if it was ever really in the cards though.
He said that when Gunn was “fired”, though. Felt like damage control. I bet he really does have a big influence on the cosmic stuff.

Thunderbolts might happen, but god damn with all the Fox properties a proper Annihilation movie is in the cards now. Adam Warlock stuff. Silver Surfer and much much more.

Exciting times ahead

"Well, you see...Cap, I decided the UN didn't have jurisdiction in space....It's the united nations, not the united planets, so I just didn't talk to them before I decided to save the universe."
Random Avenger: So. Carol, I was wondering why you never help out at any of the past 20 or so events that happened over the last 10 years.

Carol: Have you heard about the Inter-Planetary Accords? I had to sign that and they decreed that Earth was a backward planet that didn't deserve any help. I didn't know before I signed /shrug. So I've only been back for vacations only. This time it's different.

None of the Avengers know who she is, either. Whatever scene introduces her to them will also introduce her to any audience members who haven't seen her film.
Well, okay, but that sounds like you're arguing that you can just start with the JLA movie, and not have solo films to introduce people to the various members...

Yes, that could be done. It wasn't done well the last time it was tried, but it could work. Heck, the first GOTG introduced a whole team of new characters just fine.

Good week for the MCU.

I'm not sure Thunderbolts is still on the table for Gunn if he's doing Suicide Squad. Very, very similar thematic ground.

But I guess GOTG is pretty close, too, so who knows.
You never know. I'm sure Feige would give Gunn Thunderbolts if he wanted it. I do believe Marvel will do the property eventually in the span of 10 years.

This makes me a lot happier to support the MCU. Also, with the upcoming lineup, I don't see why Endgame would tease F4 or the X-Men in the credits scenes. With the upcoming slate of movies, the Fox properties are at least 3-5 years away. Why rush that scene right after the deal closes just to tease something so far off? If they tease anything, it will likely be an intermediate story before those properties dominate. I could easily see a setup to the Eternals here since Thanos is one.

well avengers 1 teased thanos, and that wasn't paid off until 6 years later

I think people want a similar tease, something that has implications on MANY upcoming stories, not just the next one on the release schedule. An X-Men or F4 teaser fits the bill.

but yeah I could see an Eternals tease happening too.

Tweets are war? Debates are war? Lol

If that’s war, pretending Marvel and DC are any better themselves is hilarious.
"Flame war" is a colloquial phrase describing abusive debates in forums or social media. When MHWilliams said "war", this is most likely what he's alluding to and not literal armed conflicts.

I’m aware. I’m not an idiot.

Which is why I made my larger point about calling the companies innocent of such themselves naive as hell.

Did the companies officially hurl angry insults at each other over social media? Honest question; I don't follow these kind of news.
Hit Google anytime you want. Their rivalry is well-documented.

It’s not what it once was, but they’re obviously still competitors, however magnanimous they are with the press. So looking down at debates between fans of one or both because “the companies don’t even care” has always been silly to me. Of course they care. That doesn’t mean they can’t both co-exist, or that workers of one won’t ever work for the other, though.

I mean, when thinking about "flame wars" I think about the kind of substanceless exchanges where they just badmouth each other with little sense, calling the other side's fans as idiots with no taste or something, with seething rage and hateful language. It goes way above the realm of "competition" or "rivalry", and definitely feels like they're fighting a specific battle the companies are not even in.

So I asked this in the spoilers thread but didn't get an answer (very minor spoilers follow). Why do the Skrulls take Carol's shoes/boots in the beginning of the movie?
